Captivating play of colors through the day

ENVELON’s solar-active façades are the new sustainability aesthetic – unlocking the potential to creatively play with colors and create an inspired look.  Depending on the time of day and the sun’s light intensity the physical properties of the material create a real eye-catcher – as a result of the interference effect between the incident light and the panel, the color saturation varies according to the position of the sun over the course of the day.

Buildings with as solar façades shimmer with vibrant color through the day, bringing building façades alive with color.

Seamless building envelopes thanks to invisible mounting system

Architects and developers go to great lengths to aesthetically pleasing buildings and with unique character. ENVELON’s active façades don’t get in the way thanks to a frameless design and hidden mounting hardware. The result is pure beauty with all the benefits of a conventional glass façade made materials with the added bonus of solar electricity production.
